Subject: Urgent Help requested
Dear uploader of this classic flick,

Writing to you with request for help in our Rooftop Cinema project.

We plan to screen this classic under Roger Corman Retrospective in July 2010 in the summer outdoor cinema in Tallinn, Estonia.

As we have w20m x h13m outdoor cinema screen and 15000 ANSI digital Christies projector we would need maximum quality from the screened film´s digital file. The current mpeg2 file most likely remains little lo-fi for our resolution capacity.

We would like to request from the uploader of this movie to Internet Archive if it would be possible to provide us with UNCOMPRESSED AVI or QUICKTIME FILE as high quality video as possible?

If you would be able to share the file, please contact me directly: aivar [at] or skype aivarlaan

Looking for any feedback as soon as possible,

Thank you very much in advance,
best rgds,

Aivar Laan

Subject: Good Corman Effort
This is a pretty good Corman movie. Iconic characters and nice settings are used. It's a typical morality tale set in Hawaii. 'Nuff said.

I downloaded the mpeg1 file. The video had very noticeable compression artifacts. The audio is fine.

Whew. Worthy of a "C+" for low budget South Sea Island effort

Subject: Not terrible.
A little drawn out at the end, but not bad. Not very good, but definitely not bad.

Subject: Roger Corman's "GREED" (it aint).
This movie is similar to Roger Corman's "The Last Woman on Earth." Despite its exploitation of human skin, it's rather good. Alright, let's not be hypocritical, it's good at least partly because of it. The men remove their shirts even earlier than they do in "Last Woman" and the women don't wear any in the first place, because they're pearl divers.

Like that movie, it features two initially closely-bonded male protagonists, whose relationship disintegrates under the stress of greed, for pearls in this movie, for "the last woman" in the other. In this movie the "bad" brother is undone by greed and "shark-magic" exerted by the "madame" of the pearl divers. Without the magic, he would certainly have prevailed, as did the "bad" male in "Last Woman."

The movie is interesting partly as an exercise in reading between the lines, if that's not too uncinematic a metaphor. Should I say "viewing" between the "frames?" Viewing "Last Woman" shortly before viewing "Sharks" certainly helps.

Obviously of special interest and appeal for those who like Roger Corman, as I do. I'm not sure why.
